We love carving animals on gourds. Actually, we are in the process of creating a zoo of gourd lamps. So every now and then we will design and make one or two gourd lamps with animals on them. We usually make two gourd lamps from each animal. One will be with a lot of details trying to reflect the personality of the animal as much as we can. The other one will be relatively easier to make, less time consuming and consecutively more accessible price-wise.
The Parrot falls into the second category but still attractive and eye-catching. We have used side cuts and sectional drilling craft to make this gourd lamp enticing as it can be. once lit with a bright light, you would be able to see an effect as if the parrot has opened his wings.
